... said 'some source'. who is "a source'? per the same article, the timberlake/jayz concert is still on. *shrug* sometimes huffpost is no better than a (lib) gossip site.

I swear, I hate this media and its lazy reporting. they dont even vet the sources before they just fling some crap in the wind. "well just add our corrections at the end."

has any other celeb besides stevie issued a statement on this? it doesn't sound believable. ..or realistic.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently.
